's the latest on this particular score, jim? >> reporter: well, wolf, i can tell you right now that ann romney is about to take the stage behind me. she's going to be holding an event here in littleton, colorado, in a few moments from now. she's been one of this campaign's most effective surrogates and been very busy doing just that while her husband, mitt romney, has been doing debate preparations just a short distance away in denver. it will be fascinating, wolf, to watch the body language between mitt romney and president obama tomorrow night when they meet face-to-face as the obama campaign revealed to cnn, the two men have only met a few times in the past. flash back to 2008 and there they are. then-senator barack obama and mitt romney sharing a few moments on stage after back-to-back democratic and republican presidential debates in new hampshire. they also ran into each other at a labor day parade in 2007. a campaign source cataloging the meetings tells cnn these are just two of the three times the candidates have ever seen each other in person. flash forward to 2012 one day before the
said, i think they did show -- i did see ann romney and the romney family, and i had seen michelle obama and some key cabinet members in the audience. joining me right now is scott tifton, the republican congressman from colorado, and we chatted before coming up here, it is amazing -- i love your state -- i don't know why you have the airport far from the city, but that's just me. why the desperate clammor for nine electoral votes? >> colorado is key, really, to the election, just in terms of how different break outs go across the nation. he's nine electoral votes who could decide who the next president's going to be, and colorado -- neil: the feeling, congressman, that a swing state like colorado and other states so this is like the spillover effect? >> i think really in colorado we see what challenges the nation. it is about jobs. it is about the economy, being able to get the people back to work. we have suffering families here in colorado. they worry about how much money to be able to put in the gas tank and still put food on the tail of the that's the focus. colorado represent
that i wanted to remember in my head. ann romney said when mitt romney goes out for one of these debates, he writes dad at the top of the -- kind of touching seriously, i thought. it was nice. but i would immediately write down the five or six key points they wanted to be sure to try to work in somehow. because you can't take any prepared materials in there with you, but you can remember the things that you walk on stage with, and get them down in a hurry. >> cenk: or if you can't remember them, you write them in your head like sarah palin did. >> al gore: michelle obama -- this is their 20th wedding anniversary and she said she was going to make him write on his palm love you honey or something. >> eliot: this is a great way for mitt romney to show a human. >> jennifer: yeah. >> cenk: jennifer did you have zingers? >> jennifer: absolutely. i wanted to ask the vice president looking at these backgrounds and podiums, doesn't it make your stomach clench? >> al gore: no, i found them exciting and enjoyable in the same way i played a football game. >> jennifer: interesti
think that clip that you played of ann romney saying i love women is so illustrative because the romney campaign wants to just assert, we're for women without having any sort of specifics to back it up, any sort of policies that would show that they would help women, that they would be sensitive to these issues. so you can't just come out and say, i love women. you have to back it up and show what the you're going to do for the american people that makes sense. i personally don't think that there's anything he could do at this point to truly close that gap. >> and he better not point and say stop it, because that doesn't work either. >> joy reid and crist yal ball, as always, brilliant women. wonderful. tomorrow we are taking the show on the road with the ktz broadcasting live from the university of denver, site of the first of three presidential debates. our special coverage begins at 4:00 followed by chris matthews, of course, and "hardball" at 5:00. >>> next, why are billionaires so angry with the president? stay with us. >> we have the mandates and the moral authority to make things

men will be joined by their wives tomorrow. ann romney says during past debates in the primaries, her husband routinely looked over at her for reassurance. meanwhile, tomorrow is the obama's 20th wedding anniversary. mrs. obama recently joked she would like her husband to write love you, honey on his hand so she and 50 million or so others can see it when he waives. >> as we said, all begins just over 24 hours from now. peter aim ex-an der already in the venue in denver and set tonight. thanks. >>> our political director chuck todd is also part of our team in denver, tonight debuting our pre-debate polling numbers. chuck, how interesting that 34 states are voting, but this race is still on the move, and either a gaffe or a big moment at one of these debates could change the numbers further. >> reporter: look, it's absolutely true. and let's look at our new nbc/wall street journal poll. there are two numbers that matter more when judging whether a president wins re-election or not. it's his job approval rating and where people see the direction of the country. for the president right n

but also for their wives. both michelle obama and ann romney are talking about their role in the debates. first lady says she mostly offers positive reinforcement but does get nervous. >> i get so nervous at these debates and, you know, i'm like one of those parents watching their kid on the balance beam. you're just standing there, just trying not to, you know, have any expression at all. >> ann romney says she comforts her husband during the debates and he looks for her in the audience. she talked up one of mitt's traditions, too. >> the first thing he does when he gets on stage -- there are a few first things he does. he takes off his watch and put it is on the podium. but then he writes dad on a piece of paper. >> says her husband respects had his father and wants to make him proud. tonight's debate begins at 7:00 pm eastern. >>> our affiliate knov says flight 1862 left for dallas yesterday but had to return because of landing gear problems. passengers say people were crying when the flight crew told passengers to prepare for an emergency landing. >> they said the landing gear -- oka
like ohio. but they think this is a changing moment. i read one interview anecdotally about ann romney saying the first thing mitt romney does when he gets in these debate is he walks on stage, he puts the watch on the podium. he where is on the piece of paper, dad, because of his dad george romney also ran for president. then he finds ann romney in the crowd. and i think that that -- we'll be watching for that. how governor romney handles the first minutes of his persona tonight will make a big statement about how this whole thing goes. bill: thank you, bret, we'll see you later tonight. bret baier live in denver. 8:55 eastern. you know it's important now. jamie: important enough to stay up. bill: full reaction tomorrow morning right here. jamie: republicans are now seizing on a comment by joe biden on middle class americans. the vice president was trying to fire up a crowd in the swing state of north carolina and many critics say he ended up committing his latest gaffe. you watch and decide. this is deadly earnest, man. how they can justify, how they can justify raising taxes on the
years ago. just go with that. >> that is first lady michelle obama and ann romney offering their advice to their husbands. president obama heads to colorado today. mitt romney has been here since monday night. with me now is former colorado governor billowens. the second of three colorado governors i have on my show today. let me start with the same question i asked governor hickenlooper. why is colorado a swing state? what do you tell friends and families and colleagues when they ask what makes colorado such a right down the middle state? >> it is one of the best educated states in the country in terms of college graduates it is the best educated state in the country. we really are a microcosm of the country. a lot of coloradoens came from other states. and so it's a nice place to battle out the country's elections. and as you probably pointed out earlier we have gone all sorts of ways in presidential elections. we have elected democratic governors. i think the coloradoens take a look at the candidate and vote for the person they think will do the best job for colorado and the country.
surrogate have been here shadowing the president while he does debate prep. yesterday it was ann romney. i saw matt romney was appearing with marco rubio, one of the rising stars from florida. he's here to help turn out the hispanic vote in navy nevada. i sat down with him for an exclusive one on one. he said republicans should calm down about the polls. he believes that mitt romney's going to have a strong debate and he said the message should be very simple. take a listen. >> my pitch to voters is simple. we can't afford four more years of barak obama. we can barely afford four more months. if we have four more years of barak obama, we can't wait four years for people to find jobs or our houses to be worth what we paid for them. we can't wait four years for our kids to find job when is they graduate college. we can't wait for four more years. we can't afford it. >> marco rubio told me he thinks mitt romney, having a chance tomorrow night for the first time ever to be on the same stage with the president of the united states in his words, will crystallize the choice for voters. i think th
romney and ann romney talking about their marriage as one of the best moments as well. >> bill: i'm going to make a prediction to henry and to cammeron. ready for my prediction? >> romney will wish the couple happy anniversary. one of the first thing he does. >> no question about it. couple family things about rom mr. romney you should note too. one thing he does is immediately makes contact with his wife in the audience when he takes the podium. next thing he does he writes the letters dad dad for his father on the note pad. what you say can matter. there is awful lot of talk how romney has never forgotten that his father's presidential campaign was derailed by misstatement being brain washed by the vietnam war. that left a mark. he is super cautious about what he says. all the rehearsing and all of that sever o since of calm all his aides have described. we that ride the plane have seen. not about the consultants and super pacs and background noise that comes with the presidential campaign. it's now on his soldiers. he either has to perform orer he won't. >> bill: both of these guys thi
enough for stocks to go a little bit higher. >> thank you. >>> our tough call this morning, ann romney, was she a little bit off message? listen to her response when cnn's nevada affiliate ktvn asked her what her concerns were about her husband being president. >> i have all the confidence in the world in his ability, in his decisiveness, in his leadership skills, in his understanding of the economy. my biggest concern, obviously, would just be for the -- his mental well-being. >> how did you read that? >> what she said after that was she used the word emotional. which is i think what she meant the first time. she just meant, gosh, the barrage of criticism. that you don't just need the fire in your belly anymore. you need the fire in your throat. >> so many people are attacking that today. you know, the 47% thing i actually thought was not a misstatement. i do think she just framed it wrong. >> i think this is -- she's getting a rough deal on this. she's clearly just saying what she means is this is a hard job. this is my guy. i'm worried about him. >> part of the hard job is to help -
.com. >> meantime, ann romney is stumping for the votes in the battlegrounds. she told campaign rally in henderson, nevada, yesterday that her husband is up to the task of being president. >> this country is ready for a turnaround. this country is ready -- this country is ready for mitt romney. >> ann romney also said mitt doesn't talk, he does. and later today, a pennsylvania judge is expected to decide whether to uphold a new state law that requires every voter to present a photo i.d. at the polls. opponents of the republican-backed measure say it would keep over 900,000 people from voting and unfairly targets poor and minority voters. the judge has to decide whether everyone in the state has equal access to valid i.d.s before the november 6 election. >>> train versus truck. as dawn begins to break over central california, amtrak workers will be busy trying to put three passenger cars back on the tracks. look at this, folks. they derailed yesterday. this is south of fresno. and officials say a tractor trailer failed to stop at a crossing and plowed right into the side of that train. more than 17

[applause] >> let me be the very last to welcome you to this very important event. show of hands -- have many of you have been in this hall before? you know the rules. absolute silence. for those of you who watched on television, you know the rules are different for these events. in the early days when it restarted addressing the audience of a hall, i would say, ok, you make noise. hiss and boo and applaud and cheer. i will make you stand up and camille you in front of the whole world. i do not do that anymore. -- and humiliate you in front of the whole world. i do not do that anymore. you know the drill. you know how important this event is. it is important because it is about millions of people watching this event tonight. they are watching to make a decision on the most important decision the citizens of this country can make. it behooves all of you an
.s.a.. thank you. host: ann, democratic line. caller: hello. host: go ahead. caller: i would ask mitt romney why he says he is for the middle-class and when he was governor of massachusetts one of the first things he wanted to do was close down all the community colleges. that was what most of the middle class and lower class could afford. i do not think that he realizes what it means to be middle- class. he has no clue as to the finances of american people. he is so out of touch, i do not think he would do anything to help this country. host: let's take a look at the recent campaign ads that have come out. first, a new mitt romney advertisement. [video clip] >> you will pay higher taxes for government-run health care. their plan includes $1 trillion in taxes on the middle class. mitt romney and common sense conservatives will cut taxes on the middle-class. we cannot afford four more years. >> i am mitt romney and i approve this message. host: we will take a look at a moment -- take a look in a moment at the latest obama advertisement. this message -- host: now, the president obama advertise
the expectations game that he's got to fulfill, and we'll see how he does. >> anne, this praise of mitt romney about an anecdote of being abandoned on a boat his hi grandkids. take a look and take a listen. >> i said, who's going to grab the rope? and i looked up, and there was mitt romney. so he pull ed me in, tied up th boat for me, he rescued me just as he's going to rescue this great country. >> is it part of the governor's problem that even his friends can't make him seem like a likable guy, who would appeal to the average american. someone without a boat, without a lake house? >> well, yeah. >> how does he endear himself to john q. sixpack in denver. >> he was able to do it during don vengs. we heard some incredibly compelling story. not all of them were in prime-time. some of them were in the earlier hours when fewer people were watching. but by so many accounts, he's been a caring member, a caring member of the church, a frugal person, despite all of his wealth. he's not particularly comfortable talking about himself, and it may be the case, as with the clip you just played, some of hi
. by the way, ann romney yesterday did an interview where she talked a little about mitt's, what does he when he takes the stage. as soon as he gets up on stage, he takes off his watch and he puts it on the podium and then on a piece of paper, he writes dad. she says that's amazing because he loves his dad, respects his dad, doesn't want to do anything that would not make his father proud. i love the fact that mitt does that, so he writes that word, dad. he'll do that tonight on that stage. >> brian: i remember the question he was asked, what would your father do, now that you got the nomination? he said be bold. so if he wants to take that, that's really the philosophy he should bring in tonight's. >> martha: good point. he also says he looks into the crowd to make eye contact with her and to see where she is and to sort of have a moment of connection, which i think everyone has things that sort of ground them and help them to relax and be focused and it was interesting to get a little insight into what their ritual is. we'll see how that works out tonight's. and also we've got several new p
? is ann romney there? are their children there? >> both candidates' wives will be here. but not yet. the first lady, sort of funny, the president has been having his debate prep in nevada. the first lady is holding a campaign event in nevada. but they're at separate locations and will be flying to denver separately and meeting up here for the first time. she'll see him before the debate, but it is hardly, i think, the kind of date any couple would want for their 20th wedding anniversary. she did say she expects to -- he'll make it up to her at another time. >> i guess a presidential debate is a pretty decent excuse. jessica yellin for us in denver. jessica, we'll look for you later. thank you so much. >>> cnn's live coverage of tonight's debate begins at 7:00 eastern. >>> call it the debate before the debate. we're about to show you what each candidate will probably say tonight in his own words. i'm brooke baldwin. the news is now. >>> the woman who battled mitt romney ten years ago joins me live on how their debate gave romney a major boost. >>> plus -- >> middle class has been bur
legacy of education and some capital, and mitt romney turned that into an extraordinary fortune, but he and ann lived on a budget when they were young, and what i think most appealing about him is the five boys of whom i met three, and mrs. romney, whom i met, and they are an ordinary american family. they are just -- imagine five boys running around at the age of 6, and that makes you very ordinary. he didn't kill any of them, that's a start. [laughter] i think that will come across, and all of the efforts to bring up the money and the house and the horse and all of that stuff, i don't think americans care if it comes across one on one how much money. nelson rockefeller won in new york again and again and again and again and again, and his fortune dwarf that. there are a lot of rich democrats that this issue doesn't come up. kerry did not lose because he married the heinz fortune. he lost because he was not particularly approachable. [laughter] i think that what you're concerned about is right to be concern the about, but i think as people get to know the governor, and especially the g

her a lot more. they dropped some of the family friendly ad with ann, and went right after her. and the debates certainly played a big factor. three one-on-one debates between romney and o'brien. and romney was considered to win at least two of those debates. >> let me ask you about the performance in the debates. as i recall and also from reading there uh your article, his challenger at the time did something foolish in a debate, attempted humor without knowing the outcome. that's something none of us should ever do. and she really fell flat. and at the time, that was something that a lot of people said was a superb moment for mitt romney. and now we're hearing he's practicing zingers. wouldn't you think he would've learned from the failures of his challenger? >> yeah. i think he can benefit in two different ways. one is by coming across as a good alternative as somebody who people want to go to. the other way is for his opponent to have some faltering moment in a high-profile debate. days before the election, tim russert was moderating, the whole state was tuning in, it was a
in denver. >> day before facing off with president obama in denver, romney attended staff meetings and stepped out for mexican fast food with the ohio senator rob portman, the man playing the president in the mock debate rehearsals. his wife ann hit the trail in his stead. >> we're focused and i can't wait for the contrast we're going to hear tomorrow. >> campaigning in iowa, running mate paul ryan asked about the confession that 47% who don't pay income taxes think government owes them. >> get them a job so they're good taxpayers. >> we don't want a stagnant economy that fosters dependency. we added 50 million people to food stamp rolls in the last four years because there is no opportunity, no economic growth. >> in the debate, romney is sure to be asked what is now shorthanded as his 47% remarks. he previewed his explanation to denver fox affiliate. >> i'm a president for 100% of the american people. that is the real percent people care about. not 99% versus 1%. not 47%. i'm president for 100% of the people and demonstrated that throughout my life. >> within hours of the vice pr
